You might call Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, a DJ, but that doesn't quite cover it. The London multigenre-ist takes leaps from project to project, having graced us with everything from pastoral acoustic ambiance to funky blends of house raveups and backpack-hiphop grooves. He has teamed with jazz drummer Steve Reid on a series of electronics and percussion improvs that reaches way outside the rave/hip-hop realms, and has also remixed a varied bunch of artists including Explosions in the Sky, Thom Yorke and Steve Reich. These remixes were all trademarked with Four Tet's organic/acoustic textural bent, arcanely pretty electronic grain and truly sophisticated polyrhythms. Sheer sonic chameleonics it is. The same can be expected from L.A. hero Nobody (aka Elvin Estela), the Low End Theory resident DJ and painterly hip-hop/psychedelia/soft-rock/metal & more masher. Add that to a manner of house/electronic boundary-pushin' from NYC's Anthony Naples.
